Muslims would like to see UK companies do more to raise awareness of Ramadan
More than nine in ten (93%) Muslims would like to see more initiatives from UK companies to raise awareness of Ramadan and its practices.A study of 500 Muslims revealed that while nearly half (48%) feel their employers do take some measures to support the community during Ramadan, more could be done in the workplace.More flexibility (56%), earlier finish times (55%) and frequent breaks throughout the day (41%) were among the top things these workers would like to have during the month.Later start times and working from home also feature among the workplace requests.In response to these findings, Uber Eats launched its “Sundown Spots” initiative – a series of pop-up restaurants offering free iftar meals after sundown, to support the delivery drivers and couriers working throughout Ramadan.BAFTA nominated TV chef, Zuhair Hassan – known to many as Big Zuu – who is working with Uber Eats, said: “For me, Ramadan is a time to reset and reflect.“Iftar is my favourite part of Ramadan. It feels like a pinnacle moment – you take a step back, realise where you are now, and where you’re meant to be heading.“So I’m pleased to be partnering with Uber Eats on an initiative that is celebrating the significance of this moment.“It’s so important that Muslims are represented and feel seen and heard in modern Britain, not least during the most sacred month in the Islamic calendar – so it’s great to be able to highlight the fantastic food our culture has to offer.“When it comes to opening fast, I’ll eat most things – apart from pork, of course.
